Laikipia ‘hustler’ wins shs 20m mega jackpot bonus on SportPesa

When last Sunday’s match between Belgium-based teams Standard Liege and Royal Antwerp ended, Kenneth Wanjohi 25, regretted on why he had decided to bet on a draw for the game.

The lad from Laikipia County was within reach of quarter of a billion shillings in last week’s
SportPesa Mega Jackpot but that one match in the 17-game jackpot made him miss out on
Sh252,673,804. The match ended three nil in favour of Standard Liege.
For the impressive stab at predicting the Mega Jackpot games, Wanjohi who got 16 correct
predictions in the jackpot was, however, awarded Sh20,031,087 by the gaming
company at the SportPesa offices in Nairobi.
“I was home with my family after having supper when I got the congratulations message on
my phone following the end of the MJP. I was so excited I did not sleep that night. I kept
wondering when I could travel to Nairobi to the SportPesa office to confirm my win,” said
“As I waited for day-break, I decided to withdraw some money from my SportPesa account
just to confirm the win. I first withdrew Sh1,000 and when I saw for real it had been
deposited to my Mpesa, I went and withdrew another Sh20,000. I was so happy to confirm
that all this money is true and it is mine,” he added.
Wanjohi, who is currently unemployed, said he will first build his parents a decent house
before opening up a business to improve the welfare of his family.
He has been betting on SportPesa since 2015 mostly on multibets. He has tried the jackpots
only five times in his betting history, becoming lucky on this fifth try last weekend.
The young millionaire is a major fan of English Premier League side Chelsea while locally he
supports Tusker FC.
Some of the other matches which were included in last week’s SportPesa Mega Jackpot
were: Torino vs Juventus, Mallorca vs Sevilla FC, Hull City vs Birmingham and Troyes vs AC
Ajaccio among others. The last time someone came close to winning the MJP was in August
Samuel Kiprono Maina from Ndarawetta in Bomet got 16 out of 17 predictions correct
to win a bonus of Sh11 million.
